coopernov3.jpg“Citing all the talk in the media since Mr. Cooper’s often emotional reporting and commentary during the hurricane coverage,” CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein told the New York Times: “Clearly, America is embracing Anderson Cooper.” More exaggerated quotes:

> AP: “He’s got a refreshing way of being the anti-anchor. He’s not quote-unquote reporting at you. He’s just being himself. He’s asking the questions you would like answered. He’s getting involved the way you might. You feel that he’s a regular person that you can trust talking to you. He brings such a passion to the storytelling that’s infectious.”

> NYT: “Klein also noted that Mr. Cooper has started to turn up as a character satirized on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on NBC, a development that he said was ‘a sure sign’ that people were becoming more aware of him.”

> AJC: “Anderson’s the man, obviously. The whole country is talking about Anderson, and it only made sense to find a larger showcase for him.”
